Today's topic is classroom information!
After several years I have decided I really want things spelled out about how things work in my school and classroom. It has saved me MANY times because it is, " all in the classroom handbook."
I mentioned yesterday that the "Me Bags" were homework for the SECOND day of school. I do send home homework for the first day of school also. I send home this:
This is my parent handbook. It is about 8 pages long and information about anything and everything that happens in my classroom. As far as homework goes, I ask parents to read it the first night of school (the kids love that it is really their parent's homework!) and sign and return the last page.
I also sent home a weekly newsletter. Actually, my co-teacher was awesome and wrote it each week, but it had both our names on it! : ) I did design the template. It was owls to match our classroom theme.
I have listed an editable version of these newsletters on Teachers Pay Teachers for only $2.00. There are 3 page options and includes a filled out newsletter as an example.
